Ascend Hospice

Share your love of music with hospice patients. Come on board with us and give the gift of musical skill and musical training to enhance the quality of life for a patient on hospice and/or members of their family. We are in need of people who are willing to share their abilities of music with patients. Music volunteers enrich patients’ lives with the joy of music. The gift of music can be linked to distant memories and often soothes and relaxes Alzheimer's patients and reduces their stress. Volunteers commit only the time that they have to give and on a schedule that works for them. You can make a difference in a person's life for our agency. A great opportunity for music school students or retired music teachers!
